Re: Invidia or Asus graphics card?
Do Nvidia sell reference cards? I wasn't aware there were any pure Nvidia cards out there.
The choice in your situation is simple, get the 1GB card. It's faster in other ways as well as just having more memory.
Besides that, ASUS aren't exactly a non-name brand. You can trust an ASUS GTX460 to be just as high in quality if not better than a Nvidia reference GTX 460 (if they do retail?). My guess would be that they probably have a longer warranty too.
